Mark Allen, is a leading media company with a team of over 550 individuals,  and we are searching for a talented Deputy Editor to join the team of our market-leading publication in the international off-highway machinery industry.

This exciting role offers the perfect blend of traditional print media expertise and the chance to develop your skills in exciting new areas. You’ll play a vital role in shaping the future of our publication, from crafting high-quality content for our print magazine to creating multimedia content like YouTube videos, podcasts, and social media posts.
